ARC review: One Plus One by Jojo Moyes

Book synopsis(via Goodreads):

 Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied and your math whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t afford to pay for. That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess’s knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages . . . maybe ever.

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Penguin Group/Viking for the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. This novel will be published July 1, 2013.***

This insomniac's review:

Oh, Jojo. You have done it again.

The characters in this novel drew me in right away, even though they really weren't all that likeable. However, they were certainly believable.

I slowly fell in love with all of the central characters in the novel and, although the plot was simple and everyday, I fell in love with the novel as well. I gobbled this book up in just a couple of sittings and let out a contented sigh when the last page was turned.

Now, what shall I do until the next Moyes is published??

Worth staying up all night to read?
